Four Palestinians killed by Israeli forces in West Bank raids


Three Palestinians were killed by the occupation army, at dawn Thursday, during the raid in the northern West Bank.

Palestinian Ministry of Health stated that, “The Israeli army executed 3 Palestinians in a vehicle near the town of Jaba, Jenin Governorate, in the northern West Bank.”

The martyrs were— 22-year-old Ahmed Mohammad Fashafsha, 26-year-old Sufyan Fakhoury, and 25-year-old Nayef Ahmed Al-Tabash Malaysha.

The Israeli Broadcasting Authority said that the youths were armed and that two of them belonged to the Islamic Jihad Movement, and claimed that they got out of the vehicle and started shooting at the Israeli forces, which responded by killing the three.

The Palestinian News Agency quoted eyewitnesses as saying that Israeli special forces infiltrated the town and opened fire on a vehicle containing three young men in the Al-Fwara area of ​​Jaba, killing them.

In addition, the Palestinian Ministry of Health announced the death of 14-year-old Walid Nassar, from critical injuries sustained in the abdomen, as a result of the occupation army’s bullets in Jenin two days ago.

On Tuesday, the Israeli army carried out a military operation in Jenin, killing six Palestinians.

UN envoy ‘deeply disturbed’ by ongoing violence between Israelis and Palestinians

The United Nations envoy for peace in the Middle East urged Israel and the Palestinians on Wednesday to calm escalating violence in the occupied West Bank, a day after the latest Israeli raid killed six people.

“I am deeply disturbed by the continuing violence and appalled by the attacks of Israeli settlers against Palestinians in Huwara near Nablus,” said Tor Wennesland.

UN official adds, “Israel, as the occupying power, must ensure that the civilian population is protected, and perpetrators are held to account,” said the UN official “I condemn settler violence against Palestinians. I condemn Palestinian attacks against Israelis. All civilians must be protected from violence.”

“I am also alarmed by the events that unfolded yesterday during an Israeli operation in Jenin, resulting in armed exchanges between Israeli security forces and armed Palestinians,” he added.

Since the beginning of 2023, confrontations have escalated in the West Bank, including Jerusalem, and have resulted in the death of 77 Palestinians and the death of 14 Israelis in separate operations.
